The interior is completely different to what the outside suggests. It's contemporary, light and airy. The landlady was wonderfully friendly and gave us directions to town centre, which is only a short walk away. A charming pub with a superb range of ales and gins. My only regret is we didn't get to try the Sunday roasts which seem very... More

Love the Sunday lunch here. Its £7.50 for the main course and is exceptional value. Roasties, Mash, Yorkie and 3 veg. Had the beef and chicken which are both pretty good. Service is excellent behind the bar and at the table. Would heartily recommend

The tide went out in Hull and left this late Victorian inn stranded between a retail car-park and a dual carriageway, but don't let that put you off. On the other side in overlooks the old Railway Dock, now an attractive marina, and the park-like grounds of the Holiday Inn. It is within easy walking distance of the centre of... More

After shopping we wanted some quick food, so popped in The food was very good value for money. A sirloin for less than £9! I wasn't expecting much, but got far better than expected. We will be visiting again. Bare in mind that this is a pub, but is well maintained and delivers beyond initial impressions. Service was very good.

Brilliant staff, brilliant service and fantastic food. The room were in first rate condition and over all we could not fault the Hotel, it was also located very close to shopping, ice rink and the city centre and a stroll along the Marina was lovely.
